The Detachment of Redshirts is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lieutenant Leslie with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 22.69 billion Redshirts are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Outpost Station 2. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The strong a Redshirt economy, worth a remarkable 1,903 trillion Shore Leaves a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 83,891 Shore Leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, billions are being spent on a new island airport, foreign planes and migratory birds are shot down as spies, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Redshirts's national animal is the tribble, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Prime Directive.

Redshirts is ranked 228,946th in the world and 11th in The United Federation of Planets for Most Conservative, scoring 27.83 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
